Was it proven by scientific evidence that the lead actually came from the paint? Are there any incidents wherein people are poisoned by lead using the same brand of paint? If it was proven that the lead indeed came from that particular paint, the manufacturer can also be held liable. Quite surprising actually, for as far as I know, all lead-based paints are now banned.

Be it a class-action suits or a lawsuit related to personal injury the thing in this case it that the paint contained lead and the plaintiff used this paint which led to a personal injury. They argue that there is no proof that the plaintiff's house was painted with that particular paint. So this has to be proved and if proved then only that person can have a personal injury lawsuit claim.

Even if that paint contained lead there can be a public interest litigation filed against the manufacturer.
